2002 Pontiac Grand prix wont start; unable to remove key

I put the key into the ignition and nothing happened. No lights, no clicking...dead. I stepped out of the car pressed my clicker and had a response of the headlights and interior lights turning on. I got back in the car and turned the key. The car started. I drove straight home. When I pulled into my drive way, I turned the car off and was able to remove the key. I put the key back into the ignition switch and attemted to start the car while in my driveway. As soon as I turned the key, everything went dead again. The battery connections are good and I'm measuring 12 volts DC across the battery terminals. The car will not start and I cannot remove the ignition key.....HELP!

On many cars, if the battery is dead, it locks the key in the ignition. Put a battery charger on the car or replace the battery and give it a shot.

Good luck.

Why does nothing happens when key is turned to start?


You have a faulty ignition switch relay. It's responsible for using a low voltage signal (key in start position) to send full battery power to your starting circuit.

Bought a clicker for my son's used 2003 Hyundai Tiburon (base) we just purchased. He keeps the clicker, I went to open the door with my key, and the car went into crazy mode. I put the key in th


It happens a lot for the Tiburon apparently....what you have to do is put the key in the ignition whilst the horn is going nuts, turn the key to the "on" position and wait a minute or so for the horn to stop blowing. Then press the "unlock" button on the fob until you see the turn signals flash. try turning the key over and see if it will start up. If it doesn't, try again, same thing only turn the key all the way off and try starting as normal again. I can't remember if it's the "unlock" or "lock" button you're supposed to press, but one of them does it. Test it while in the car and see if it locks when you hit lock on the fob.....oh, and also make sure all the doors are shut while you are doing this. It recalibrates the fob to the car's computer and resets your security system and keyless entry.

Battery is OK. However, nothing happens when I turn the ignition key. Problem had been intermittent until today


A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch.
Could be a dead spot in the starter. Do the warning lights work correctly ?

Key fob won't unlock or lock car VW Golf 2000


You probably caused a short circuit when you changed the light. Change fuse #14. Next time, don't turn the lights on until you are finished changing the lights.

2000 Buick Custom - no response on inital start


that sounds like its the ignitionswitch is going bad on the car or its the ignition its self. it could also be a loose wire going to your starter.

Engine does not start?


Make sure that the connections at the battery is clean and free of acid built up. Take the terminals of and clean them propperly

It could also be the ignition switch at the wiring end not making proper contact anymore, try and wiggle the ignition wiring if possible and see if there is any change in the status when the ignition is switch on
